OVERVIEW: According to the lore of Arklay, The Watchmen were the people who, along with The Founder, made the town a liveable place. That is the knowledge that brought me to submit this. The Watchmen should be there to protect those who live within the safe zone. And to try and maintain the sense of normalcy and law necessary to rebuild a society in a broken world. Conflict and obstacles help bring people together and so, we must create a steady flow of activities which will require the participation not only of the Watchmen but of the entire town. Zombie hordes, raider attacks, natural disasters... these are options we have at our disposal to create an active and interactive environment where the protectors of the town and those within it understand the mutual benefit of co-existing. The Watchmen are meant to be the law, but they should not be encase in the same definition that a Police department is. The Watchmen have a purpose: to keep this town up and running, to protect those who benefit it so the world of men can rebuild and to punish and reprimand those who endanger it. Leadership is required; and every Watchmen must be ready and willing to exercise that leadership when they are present. At the same time, Watchmen must never forget they are a part of the town just like the other members. Equality NOT superiority must be a conscious thought in the minds of those who decide to take on the mantle of Watchmen. The same way the group will protect other businesses from threats, it will protect itself from anyone who might prove unfit for the task. The Founder trusted these men and women to be a beacon and those who lead it will make sure that code prevails. For those joining the Watchmen, staying active should not be a problem. Patrolling the area, tending to the barricades, repairing and safeguarding the perimeter, tending to calls from the inhabitants, checking in with business owners; all of this will be necessary to make sure the town is functional and stable. There will be a combination of events and storylines that will involve both the players within the sim and the NPC presence of the world beyond the bridge. Arklay's survival relies on its ability to be a trading post; we are not the only one out there and because of it we will see the politics and choices of the neighbor lands cause ripple effects within our area. And should others threaten the survival of Arklay, The Watchmen will be there to protect it and to protect you. I seek to build a bond between the Watchmen and the inhabitants of Arklay. It is not a path with promises of perfection; no path is, but as long as both sides seek the betterment of this place they call home, there will be hope and there will be balance.
EXPERIENCE:in RL I am an actor, writer and director. Many of the traits I have developed while involved in the performing world have given me the capacity to see the bigger picture and also learn my position as leader also has to be selfless. I may have studied Drama, but I do not tolerate nor care to incite drama. Patience and insight are qualities I believe will be useful when taking on this role.
We all have demons, I just choose to embrace mine.
